Weekly Squirts

Check out how things went down last week…

Supreme and Timberland has collaborated forces, with Juelz Santana from The Diplomats. The combined labels released their Timberland’s 6-Inch Premium Waterproof boots the day after Thanksgiving in two different colorways. The heavy-weighters come in tan draped in colorful patriotic stars and stripes, and the other pair is completely blacked-out. Rapper Juelz Santana is added flavor to the marketing campaign because of his known flag swag that we’ve seen in various appearances. You can look for the Timbo x Supreme collection to retail at Supreme merchants on an in-store only basis in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Paris for $248 apiece.

The Moody’s Corporation has boldly called-out retailers whose loans are set to mature no later than 2019. I know, I was thinking the same thing, “Who the hell are they to be calling folks debt out all willy nilly, and which retailers are we talking about because I’m nosey?!” Well to be exact, the corporation is made-up of two folds, the Moody’s Investor Service and the Moody’s Analytics. The company is known best for providing essential credit ratings, analysis, and research for today’s financial markets, while currently maintaining a presence across 41 countries. With that said, I guess you can say that reporting folks financial business is what they do – and we’re here for it. Anywho, the retailers named in Moody’s call-out were Sears for being $10 billion in debt, J. Crew’s in the hole for $1.7 billion, Claire’s suffering from a $1.3 billion deficit, Nine West is trying to keep their brokenness down to an 18% loss, and poor Bon-Ton had to receive an advancement just to see this year’s holiday season. Admit it, 1.7 billion problems has a way of making your problems seem small don’t they???

In maintaining Carter vibes Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ Puma Clydes hit the scene in NYC this past Thanksgiving weekend. Coinciding with his ending tour dates in Brooklyn, the very limited-editions are retailing at Kith as well as Foot Locker. Puma is also the official sponsor of Jay’s tour, so I forecast seeing the two colliding many times over in the future.
